Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick and easy scrapbook layout about my recent foray into yoga.  Yoga is not something I’d ever done before, but I’m always open to trying new things.  I wasn’t sure I’d like it but I did.   Especially the Aromatherapy Deep Stretch and Relaxation class!  In order to scrapbook this I snapped a picture of my new yoga mat and a screenshot of yoga appointments during my trial week.   The screenshot was originally a very vibrant grass green so I adjusted the hue to purple in Photoshop Elements so that it would match my yoga mat and background paper.  Super easy to do and made the whole scrapbooking process much easier and gentle on the eyes.
I started with a beautiful piece of paper from the FabScraps Serenity line.  The double-sided patterned papers from this line have soft muted colours and patterns featuring botanicals, hummingbirds, and butterflies.  They are so pretty.  Here’s the piece with the hummingbirds on it:
The periodic table Yoga title is an electronic cut file designed by Suzanne Cannon and available in the Silhouette store to be cut with any electronic die cutting machine.  You might know I’m a bit of a chemistry geek and so words spelled with the periodic table elements are close to my heart.

The ‘best thing I ever did’ quote stamp is from Quietfire Design based on Vancouver Island and stamped with Clearsnap ColorBox chalk ink in Concord.  It was the perfect shade of purple for the layout.  Colorbox chalk ink comes in so many gorgeous colors.
Next, I cut the stamped image out using the Stitched Rectangles die by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used Glue Dots adhesives to hold everything together.  A few Glue Dots All Purpose Dots were ideal to attach the buttons and I used the Glue Dots permanent glue tape to attach paper to paper.Supplies Used:
Kelly Creates black fineliner pen
FabScraps patterned paper
Brother sewing machine
Quietfire Design rubber stamp
Suzanne Cannon electronic cutting file
Clearsnap Ink
Glue Dots adhesives
Elizabeth Crafts Designs stitched rectangle dies
Bazzill cardstock
Silhouette Cameo, buttons, yarn

Thanks for dropping by!  Namaste
